"Shadow of Giants" is about the struggle over one redwood tree. A struggle with international ramifications. A struggle that involves tree sitters, logger/climbers, ghosts and mythology. Portrayed through the eyes of one woman and the tree she chooses to occupy, this powerful new play depicts the ongoing conflict between environmentalists fighting to preserve the remaining redwood trees of the Pacific Northwest and the business interests of the big lumber companies who own them. In the middle is a divided community in crisis.
